R is a simple programming language for statistical computing. Due to its flexibility and the large variety of statistical functions available in R, it is a popular alternative for programs like SPSS. However, for a beginner mastering R can be rather difficult. This course helps the student to become familiar with the basics of R. After the course the student will be able to write short programs in R for basic (data) analyses and for plotting figures.

Bioconductor is an open source and open development software project for the analysis and comprehension of genomic data in R. Much of data analysis in bioinformatics is done within the R/Bioconductor statistical environment. For example, many statistical methods for the analysis of microarray and other high-throughput data are available from Bioconductor.
